being deported after his appeal to the european court of human rights was rejected well howdy doody was sent back to algeria on friday following his conviction for provoking hatred towards jews shiites and women in public speeches he reportedly made slurs against jewish people in our duty that women should not have the right to even leave their homes without permission well police had warned the man posed a significant threat as his speech is encouraged acts of terror we put the issue up for debate. people who come into the united kingdom you know france the european union have to sign up to the values of tolerance and respect respect for different faiths different ways of life it wasn't any kind of laws within europe freedom of movement of free speech he wanted to deny people that the issue is you can't be talking about freedom of speech and integrity and then the silence people i will defend your right to free speech but when that free speech is the supreme oh the
denying of all those their rights the nuts when the actual boundaries because stopped because you cannot have a say to somebody you have free speech although in that free speech you're trying to deny all the people that right and one of the problems we've got is what we don't see our justice system being dealt with properly and dealing with that it always leads to system get on with it that we see a number of extremists who are involved in terrorism or supporting terrorism now behind bars the justice system is working because those people have been caught and be put behind bars we've got the extremists here who we cannot deport but to their own countries so you seem inconsistent not only if you demonize muslims if you denies muslims i mean sloan you call is a cancer and you call this cockroach is that god think should be called out. in sales for world cup tickets to russia have produced some interesting patterns america despite not qualifying has the largest number of foreign fans coming over while the number. those from the u.k.
are actually surprisingly small despite the fact the england team have booked their place at the tournament a number of reports in the british media of late have claimed any fans who do travel over won't be safe the reason given is this supposed threat posed by russian hooligans however a new r.t. documentary has been looking at the problem a need in europe itself football blease does premiere next week on the r.t. documentary channel and here's a preview. you never know what's around you you never know what's in there can be a thief you say excitement the fact you know it that's where the adrenaline the most comes from. the violence is a part of it and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture we can do all these things and behave quite badly.
i'm just reading up i read still. it's. still. illegal when a young to shoot himself you know to participate in all the fights to fight in the street people to. tell us more sportsmanship. of the good that led up to mine if i were saying the last few months of a fool somebody. on the telephone this tell us a little low. for
this particular point out there once and must also have almost on the kursk a lot of footage of our broadcast. room the police say. a slot on the slip. honestly and infirmed down for good on policies for the starts. coming in these means that the fifty one hundred involved is constantly evolving and. just coming up to quarter past three in the afternoon here in moscow still ahead fetus out could the u.s. state of texas make a bid for freedom from the rest of the country i would have
a look at that just after the break it's. most definitely wasn't a victim. of any kind of operation or attack from the russian side because it was both really destroyed russian could be true as far as exchanges are concerned and they are dependent on it because they certainly have to get their people back if they get into trouble.
again a group of texans is fighting against the very notion of the united states of america by wanting independence a new book does explore the practicality of texan independence and we spoke to its author who claims momentum is actually building for a so-called tax it. you really want to drill down to why texas has had such an increase in support over the last decade it really boils down to one thing texans are sick and tired of being governed by one hundred eighty thousand pages of federal laws four hundred forty separate agencies in two and a half million elected bureaucrats at the core texans believe that the best people
to govern taxes are texans this idea that somehow this political and economic union called the united states of america can be fixed is a myth it is a fallacy what we have seen is in any attempt to repair reform the federal union has been met with nothing but lip service and outright insult and outrage here in texas where the texas nationalist movement was first formed back in two thousand and nine in the sense gained more than three hundred fifty thousand supporters it does actively campaign for an independence referendum and it wants restrictions on government spending in its bid to resist economic integration with the u.s. according to the polls more than half of independent supporters are republicans and we took to the streets of texas to say what locals they think about a potential tax it. i.
think you. now the u.s. has been on your own and that's a good hour that's all of. our listeners and equipment that. we are independent but we rely on the rest of the country hope you are right if you take a problem. you know over the right you know we've had this discussion of texts of goodness. for years for many people gave you a large group of our work i mean because you have so many. you know ethnic groups of religion you know as well as you know in california for their food bank they said that that it's not going to happen it's not going to happen in california. they'll get over it will all be good. now it's come to light that the u.s. has been helping the lebanese armed forces in the fight against islamic state however it is feared that some of the money and equipment is now ending up in the hands of hezbollah which washington regards as
a terror group the issue was raised in congress the united states has provided exceptional support for the lebanese armed forces in recent years and not just financial support it's not simply dollars and cents issues we have personnel working closely with and in the live in these armed forces. were figures to show since two thousand and six the u.s. has provided nearly one point seven billion dollars to help the lebanese army the security assistance funds were mainly used to provide equipment facilities and training after the disclosure a state department official said that the u.s. does keep track of all equipment handed over to creasing the risk of hezbollah are using it however some members of congress along with regional experts argue there's no difference between the lebanese army and hezbollah which is supported by iran. now another new staff one time magazine has released its annual list of world of
the world's one hundred most influential people though it has missed that one person the whole world is practically always talking about. the kremlin russian influence afraid to say negative war and above what i'm appalled. is highly likely that russia was responsible for the two poles russia culpable culpable culpable for the attempted murder is kate is culpable. if you. like it was his decision.
so that's how the news is looking so far today here and i say will be back with more at the top of the hour. the philippine city of angeles when the u.s. military moved out the six tourists moved in. and now a whole generation of fatherless children is growing up. they died an opinion one month a couple simple than an eagle. eye but a day in sudan like like. i'm the only.
son in the. site isn't the first time in the t.v. crew to see you or takes you were no don't answer is a little bit no one that it's true or. that's it but i do what my god found it. a little bit. you can take a gill of above it you can take the bucket of a girl. you've been a woman you know. oh i love you like i did it you could it be. the way the system should work is that every stock bond security underwritten by
wall street or any bank in america one percent should be carved out and put into salsa security so that americans whether they have a job as minimum wage workers or whether they're c.e.o.'s all across the spectrum everyone gets to participate in this thing called the american economy because if you don't all the stocks are not part of the american economy. we all willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but noone has signed up to the flag and poisoned by our own people of so you so if there was a nuclear biological and chemical products the said do not truck tires all types of styrofoam polystyrene these batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pip's and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate
every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from their exposure from the burn pits would really literally send a v.a. broke and they don't want to pay it so the way to the decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they will have to pay and. cultural and get the middle finger to the movies tomorrow or the slow. delayed or known to be done. this is boom bust broadcasting around the world from right here in washington d.c. the squad i'm part of. coming up today is the eighty and he time warner merger case
and chain use you're in washington arguments being made are like arguments for lower television subscription prices and increased innovation barlow who's actually been in the courtroom is actually here with us take us inside that courtroom and explain what's going on plus the federal investigators are in philadelphia after the accident that southwest airlines twice this week that took the life of the mother of shoes and injured we'll speak with former national transportation safety board officials jamie fish and will discuss the new housing numbers with kathy studio of the real wealth network plus as netflix makes a just simply disrupted movies europe will discuss how media is morphy with r.t. america's holland cook host of the big picture all that coming up the first assistant headlines oil prices on thursday approached a four year high as the benchmark price of brant crude traded in london pushed just shy of seventy five dollars per barrel opec nations have essentially met the goal
of the two percent supply cut they agreed to in december of two thousand and sixteen while speculators see increased risk to the future of supply as a result of escalating tensions in the middle east particularly in syria and earlier today the energy minister of saudi arabia told reporters that quote there is a high capacity to absorb increased prices in the global economy the comments are believed to have provoked a tweet that complained about opec from u.s. president donald trump which appears to have temporarily at least moved prices on west texas intermediate w t i traded a nine x. down just a couple of pennies the saudi ministers comments also preceded a gathering of ministerial level opec officials where saudi representatives are expected to meet the civic league with russian diplomats to review progress on those previously agreed to production cuts and decide on future plans. at this point the production reductions are planned to remain in place until the end of the
year published reports indicate that the saudis now consider seventy dollars per barrel a price floor and would be comfortable i bet they would with eighty or even one hundred dollars per barrel the average price for a gallon of regular gasoline trading in the united states right now currently stands at two dollars and seventy five cents that's up twenty cents in the past month. and in other related saudi arabia news m.b.'s crown prince mohammed bin solomon has finally as the memorandum of understanding with soft bank to finance the world's largest solar energy project ever the two hundred billion dollar investment will reportedly create one hundred thousand jobs in saudi arabia and increase the kingdoms solar capacity to two hundred get a watt by the year twenty thirty the project is one hundred times larger than the next biggest and would double global energy output for the photo of all a uk voltaic rather sector according to bloomberg softbank founder may she saw own
reportedly says billions more in investment is saudi arabia and has taken on the cause of promoting renewable energy. and earlier this week softbank the just talking about them announced that they had to amend four years of tax filings in japan after failing to report eight hundred seventy five million dollars in offshore earnings the additional taxes amounted to over thirty four million dollars or three point seven billion yen their previously under claritin therefore untaxed profits were generated at soft banks subsidiaries or bermuda and singapore and in a statement just to remain safe softbank claim that japanese authorities were imposing double taxation on the company noting we are not fully in agreement with parts of this outcome. and we now move to the eighteenth tee time warner merger which is opposed by the us government on antitrust grounds the department of justice has rested their case then officials from a t.n.t.
and time warner have told their side of the story to hear discussed as someone who's been right there in the courtroom andre barlow of the law firm doyle barlow and mazhar andre thank you for being with us we sure appreciate you were so helpful west i mean we are pretty should have you coming back so the argument that the companies were making is that this merger getting bigger will actually result in decreased cost for television and related internet services and more innovation to make an effective case in your view well i believe they did they did make an effective case i mean they they closed they rested yesterday and randall stevens came in and he told a story agency c.e.o. yes c.e.o. he came in and he explained that. is is a business that knows how to reinvent itself it's gone from wireline to wireless it's gone from one g. to four g. you know we've gone from flip phones to video streaming on mobile devices and now
we're getting ready to go into five g. they dip their toes into pay t.v. business and with directv and what did they do after they did that acquisition they went straight to a virtual pay t.v. service with directv now so you know almost cannibalizing their own market you know just done too much but it made me think i was like well that's a pretty good argument but in on the other side of me a t.n.t. itself was broken up before all those innovations you made i mean they were they were the old hard line phone and they were so big they were broken up so did the government make the argument andrea that wait be only reason you could do that is because there was competition a once a t.n.t. was broken up now remember this transaction is a vertical transactions so we're not actually eliminating any horizontal. competitors what they're doing is trying to vertically integrate with turner and use that or with time warner and use that programming with their distribution assets and what they intend to do is is really innovative.
you know over the top type of products right is what they want to do you want to get rid of that bargaining friction that currently exist so it's quicker and easier if you have content on your own right and you can vertically integrate and then you can roll our products a lot quicker then than doing it if you had to negotiate for those rights he explained how when they wanted to move in the directv now it was an easy process they thought it would be right because they already have programming contracts for direct t.v. so why would it be easy to watch this new virtual service but programmers you know they they are wary of change everyone's way of change pay t.v. business has been the same for years and now we're moving into a you know i think. stevens is said he said it was a you know we're at the at that cusp of the moment this is game changing and that's
what they're trying to do and keep in mind the department of justice agrees that direct t.v. will lower prices to its customers they agree with that the government's khana must agrees with that and their concern is that they would raise prices to other paid t.v. players and that concern is a very small concern right it's about four hundred million dollars it's about you know twenty seven cents. the government's economist he relies on. a very complicated theoretical model so the way i look at it this is this is theory versus market reality so they did a pretty good job. of that because i think at first maybe people were thinking it was going to succeed so we'll have to see where it goes we hope you'll come come back and help us again under a barlow thank you so much for your time and you're helping get a masters degree in intellectual property not just in electoral process and i trust law thank you so much thank you.
after the southwest airline accident the other day which took the life of a mother of two national transportation national traffic safety board investigators have been on the scene in philadelphia to discover what may have happened to cause the jet engine to blow apart smashing the window of the airplane and resulting in not only that death we spoke of but also injuring seven other passengers and here to discuss air safety and some of the economics of airlines is former n.t.s.b. official jamie finch who is a partner at lincoln park consulting here in washington a jamie thank you so much for being here it's nice of you it's it to do so thanks so let me ask you were what happens when an accident like this takes place what does n.t.s.b. do indeed has to be has what is called a go team that's assembled for every accident and then they go on rotation within the team itself there are those that stay in washington but the go team goes on
site and those that will consist of technical experts they will be looking at various components in and bionics of the aircraft and will also be pulling the black what's known as the black boxes the flight data recorder and the voice recorders and take bringing those back which they should be back in washington already for analysis and addition to that team as the family assistance members who are there to assist those so they are used to be the dragica right that's correct and so when they come back and they do sort of a they do sort of a forensic i know there are those times we've seen those images of airplanes and big hangars with all the parts laid out at that's what they'll be doing with this jet engine that will be doing that with this engine obviously this is less complicated than a lot of the other big crashes that are the aircraft's last we've had a in this particular situation we've had one fatality which one is always too many but when we they will be taking that. part of they will be looking at that and
doing a deep analysis of the metallurgical aspect of it what was their mental flaws were the flaws in the manufacturing of the metal they'll be looking at all of those components but it's very interesting when he is doing our investigations it they typically. that they will if they find something they will immediately make a recommendation rather than wait until the end of the investigation. that's interesting let me ask you i mean airline travel is pretty safe generally compared to other ports of transportation right i mean yes not i think it was fifteen years since there was a fatality on southwest i think since two thousand and nine in the airline industry in general but do these changes that or do accidents when investigators look at it like you're saying do they actually result in anything any changes in regulations or law oh absolutely these are examples of the examples of that there have been
changes as far as. well let's look at the one two thousand and i on the contrary the plane where the pilots had not had enough rest they just be made recommendations on rest hours for pilots in between the flight successor in considering also the travel time back and forth to the airport except there have been changes in the laws as far as the avionics as far as the the pilot training. any kind of component that they find there's been a change in the rules either by the by the f.a.a. or with congress and that particular case the family assistance act of one thousand nine hundred six or which followed after eight hundred where we were able to start working with the families and assisting them now we've seen just a couple of airline profits that have been been reported in the last couple of days and more to come next week we'll have them here on the program but by and large are there airlines that really lose lots of revenues when they have an accident or a circumstance like this airlines can go out of out of existence even from stuff.
like this i mean when they have a major catastrophe i mean we don't have to look back too far to say which was one of the major big flag carriers from the very beginning of aviation commercial aviation it went away after t.w.a. eight hundred you had value jet that went away after the crash in the in the florida everglades eastern had their crash in the florida everglades they're gone i mean so these could have dramatic and completely devastating impact it wasn't able to express what was the other one value value jet was a value jet value jet i know you jet i gave the air tran value jet morphed into air tran but value jet itself went away so these things can have huge implications on them jamie french thank you so much for being here really appreciate your time you're very welcome. time now for a quick pause but hang here because after the break we'll discuss the new housing numbers for march with cap effective the c.e.o. of the real wealth network plus r.t. america's holland cook host of the big picture joins us to analyze netflix
again and somehow though our cities have come back and many are quite beautiful and wonderful places. if you look at the middle east and places like syria it's it's i agree with you it's totally depressing and. and i wish they had the political issues involved with it could be resolved but i think until that is done there's very little hope that the saudis will be able to turn the tide at. twenty eighteen coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all suck but that was one more question and by the way who's going to be our coach. you guys i know you. you are nervous he's a huge star and the huge amount of pressure come out you have to go i mean eighty percent of the beach will tell we're with you and we will show the all the great. good you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get down
there we have to go. along with just a warning and i'm really happy to join our team for the two thousand and three and world cup in russia meet the special one come on south appreciate me to just say the radio p.r.t. teams latest edition make up as we go so i need to just say look. most definitely wasn't a victim. of any kind of federation or ethnic from the russian side because it was totally destroyed russian kind of debility as far as exchanges are concerned and they are dependent on it because they certainly have to get their people thanking to they get into trouble.
